City of Bones is ClaryÂ´s story, the story of how she discovers a big
amount of secrets about her, her mother and a new and fantastic world:
the world of the Shadowhunters.
After that night at Pandemonium, accompanied by Simon, her best friend
(or something else?) everything in her life changes, she can see things
no one else can, like that three mysterious guys that night, and when
she finds out her mother has disappeared she gets involved in the
searching not only for her mother but for the truth about her
relationships with the shadowhunters.
The book has everything I could wish for: mystery, romance, drama,
intrigue, and all that makes it really special. I found the story while
not refreshing very well written, the plot is way interesting and the
characters are elaborated enough. I liked the whole book, because is
filled with little details that could be important at some point, it
kept me reading and reading (when I had the time to read).
If I had to pick a favorite part there would be two: the kiss between
Clary and Jace (and all the Simon-Clary drama) and the final part, from
the moment Luke tells the whole story to Clary to the very end of the
I would definitely say that City of bones is a highly recommended book
that you will really enjoy, and then you will want more.
